I'm putting it out there because it will be interesting to see what actually transpires. James may enjoy being holed up in the womb until Cinco de Mayo for all I know... we shall see.
I am kind of modest and even though I share parts of my life on a blog for all the world to see, I don't share everything. So in the interest of full disclosure, I get all squirmy and weird feeling when I use the word "dilation." I don't know what is appropriate but I only feel comfortable talking about it with a very small handful of people.
That being said, it feels weird for me to even bring it up on the blog. BUT because I have been told I am going through a semi-unusual experience for a first time mom, I will hesitantly share with you that the doctor says that I am doing the "d" word and as of yesterday was "more than three but less than five." And that's all I will say about that.
Gah. Glad that's over.
You wont see me Tweeting these sorts of updates all through labor but I did want to ask, what has your experience been?
I keep getting pats on the back about it and I'm all, Thanks?
But on the inside I'm all, What does it mean?!
James is not due for another 10 days and my Dr. keeps smiling slyly and telling me I'm very "favorable" for labor.
Well, I certainly hope so. The baby must come out.
Does she mean he is coming soon? Does it mean an easy breezy delivery is in my future? Is there such a thing?
And it's 2013 for crying out loud, why can't they predict these things already?
Do they not know I have family traveling from high and low to dote on this child?
And my floors can only stay swept for so long...
So if there is anyone out there who has the spiritual gift of telling me when my baby will be born, please please please let me know.
I asked James and he didn't say a word. I guess that will be the first thing we work on... speak when you are spoken to, son.
